I may process transaction information, including purchases of services, that you enter into with me. This data may include your contact details and the transaction details. The legal basis for this processing is to provide services under a contract that we enter into.
I may process personal data identified in this policy, where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. The legal basis for this processing is to protect my legal rights, your legal rights and the legal rights of others.
